#1 – No Federal Poker Legislation
What can you say about the US Congress? The only group American trust less are used car salesmen (though it’s a very tight competition). This current crop of Congressional jokers can’t even pull their acts together when the country’s whole economy is on the line, so it’s not likely that they’ll come up with a Federal online poker bill any time soon.
In the absence of a Federal Bill, expect the states to come up with a patchwork of regulatory solutions to fill the gap. Just don’t expect to see Reid-Kyl passed anytime soon.
